Domains Names and Portfolio Management

Domain names - besides their pure technical function - have long ago started to represent trademarks in the digital world and in particular on the Internet. Domain names, therefore, meanwhile constitute for any enterprise an indispensable intellectual property right and, moreover, a considerable intangible asset. We advise our clients on all aspects of well-structured domain name management and enforce our clients' interests out of and against domain names.

We have extensive expertise relating to the following areas:

  • Management of national and international domain name portfolios
  • Development of strategies relating to domain name registration and monitoring
  • Enforcement of trademarks rights and claims relating to unfair competition against third parties (e.g. colliding trademark owners and commercial cyber squatters)
  • Longstanding experience in national and international dispute resolution, in particular before the WIPO Arbitration and Mediation Center
